    Information
The Passione collection is made in celluloid, presented in four hues. Two represent the unlimited lust and passion in the extreme, in sizzling orange and spicy cinnamon, while the Mediterranean blue and the vertical Zebra stripes convey magnetic qualities with a slightly cooler touch. The nature of this material ensures that the colour patterns of no two pens will be identical, adding a bespoke touch.

Inevitably, the Passione collection oozes with sensuality. It strikes the writer through its sinuously curved pocket clip, underlined by the two matching enamel lines, and a voluptuous shape, ending with the traditional 1912 high-relief logo. Each writing instrument in the Passione family is trimmed in 925 sterling silver trim, while the fountain pens are fitted with filigree-pattern 18K gold nibs.
Montegrappa, the first Italian manufacturer of writing instruments, opened in Bassano del Grappa in 1912. A century of superb craftsmanship has passed for this Italian brand known around the world for its Italian creativity and style.

In the same historical building since 1912, Montegrappa has been a part of the lives of great men, and it has also witnessed moments of intense creativity and innovative breakthroughs. Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos, both Red Cross volunteer ambulance drivers during World War I, crossed the threshold of the original factory entrance on Via Cà Erizzo that was recently restored. That same entrance was among the first in Italy to see the arrival of celluloid, a precious material obtained from cotton that was already a protagonist of Montegrappa collections in the thirties.
